..and this is a bit late because I was waiting for it to render but finally here it is. We heard of the passing of Bob Hughes overnight and in tribute to him, this 45 minute aircheck from Sydney’s 2DAY-FM with Bob. I’m guessing around 1982/1983? Not a lot of info with the tape to go on unfortunately.

As usual, left-click to play or right-click to save one for your own collection.
